Abstract

Assessing the mandate of the OSCE Kosovo Verification Mission proposed at Rambouillet: An insider's perspective from the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina Alexander Lupis1 On 20 March 1999 approximately 1400 monitors of the Kosovo Verification Mission (KVM) evacuated from the southern Yugoslav province of Kosovo as Serbian forces pressed ahead with their ethnic cleansing campaign against Albanian civilians. The exiled mission regrouped in Skopje, hoping that NATO air-strikes would compel the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia to accept the Interim Agreement for Peace and Self-Government in Kosovo' which gave the KVM the lead role in administering post-conflict Kosovo. But when a NATO bomb struck the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade, Chinese, Russian and Yugoslav demands for a strong United Nations role in Kosovo prevailed. A new accord was reached and the Interim Agreement was promptly relegated to paragraph 11(a) of UN Security Council Resolution 1244. While the OSCE awaits clarification of its role in Kosovo under the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), it is an appropri- ate moment to evaluate the role accorded to the KVM in the now dormant Interim Agreement. Assessing the various operational challenges faced by the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina
